Perfect Ten: Memories of an Anarchy Online noob
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 12:00 pm
My initial foray into MMORPGs was, to put it nicely, quite ungraceful. I wasn't even aware that they were a thing until about the year 2000, when I started to notice EverQuest and Asheron's Call boxes on the shelves. But stories about addiction from friends and the seeming obtuse nature of these games kept me from trying... until fall 2001, [...]

Exciting things are afoot at Riders of Icarus, as the year-old MMO rolled out its Corruption of Light update with plenty of new content for players to enjoy. For starters, there's a level cap increase to 55, meaning that everyone has a little more to do to max out their characters. With that cap increase comes one or two new [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 1:00 pm
Ready for another super-short Elder Scrolls Online snippet? How about two? The Morrowind expanshachapter team has continued posting episodes in its travel series. Last week, we got a peek at Seyda Neen in the long long ago; this week, we've checked in on Vivec and the Ashlands. Vivec, of course, is the city being built by warrior-poet and god Vivec [...]

LOTRO fights the lag monster of Update 20
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 1:30 pm
It stands to reason that Lord of the Rings Online players are pretty thrilled this week to be exploring the outskirts of Mordor, but this excitement has been tempered by severe lag that is hitting many of the servers. Standing Stone Games acknowledged the problem yesterday and said that it is working on a fix. "We are aware of the [...]

The Survivalist: Massively OP's guide to multiplayer survival sandboxes
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 2:00 pm
Welcome to The Survivalist! Ya'll might have noticed that I have gravitated a bit from my happy home of deep, immersive virtual worlds (possible due to the lack of them!) and have been tinkering about and enjoying time in various survival games. This isn't as odd as you might think! One thing I love about sandbox worlds is the ability [...]

Crowfall reflects on its 'unrelenting series of updates'
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 3:00 pm
It's a little hard to believe, but we've now been watching Crowfall develop since late 2014, going from a teaser announcement through a successful Kickstarter and arriving at the current pre-alpha testing. For this week's founder's update, the dev team decided that it deserved a moment to reflect upon all of its accomplishments and progress to date. The team pointed [...]

TERA sweetens its subscription package
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 3:30 pm
Just because an MMORPG is free-to-play doesn't mean that the studio really wants you to, y'know, play for free. Over the past year or so, we've seen several MMO studios strongly encourage players to make the switch to a subscription from both the carrot and the stick angles. TERA is more carrot, for sure, especially this week as the fantasy title [...]

Best Crusader Kings 2 mods
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 3:00 pm
Crusader Kings 2 [official site] is (somehow) now five years old. Adam raised a glass to its humour and humanity last month in celebration of its half-decade anniversary, so I thought I’d delve into its modding community to mark the occasion too. Much like the digital empires depicted in-game, many of its mods have risen […]


Endless Space 2 adds multiplayer, Riftborn faction
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 3:09 pm

Multiplayer is now in, supporting up to eight players, and a new faction has entered the 4X scrap too. The Riftborn are a lifeform from another dimension forced into ours, packing mighty time-manipulation […]

Do you want a homecoming tale but don’t want to put up with those deplorably cute animals of Night In The Woods? No worries, here’s Norco: Faraway Lights [itch.io page], a neon text adventure of conspiracy theorists in a cyberpunk New Orleans. Or more accurately, here’s a demo for the opening chapter. The story is: […]


How Wadjet Eye’s Unavowed merges RPGs and point and click adventures
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 1:08 pm
I’ll always be excited when a new Dave Gilbert game is on the horizon. Since I first played The Shivah [official site] in 2006, a murder mystery more concerned with the Jewish faith than gangsters and gumshoes, I’ve felt I’m in safe hands with almost anything Gilbert puts out under his Wadjet Eye label. That […]

Minecraft and Coming to the End of My Road
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 1:15 pm
The end of the road is in sight, and I mean that literally rather than in some sort of gloomy metaphorical sense.  My long term project to build an overland route between the Forest Mansion I found last November and our central surface world rail


What we love and hate about 'Mass Effect: Andromeda'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 1:30 pm

A veteran Mass Effect player and a complete novice walk into a bar.

This isn't the beginning of a terrible joke: Instead, it's the premise of a conversation between Engadget associate editor Timothy J. Seppala and senior reporter Jessica Conditt, both of whom have been playing the latest Mass Effect game, Andromeda, over the past few weeks. Tim has devoured and adored the Mass Effect series for almost a decade while Jessica has never touched the games before.

How does Andromeda compare to previous Mass Effect games? Does it stand on its own as a worthy addition to the sci-fi genre? Are the animations always this messed up? In the following conversation, Tim and Jessica discuss Andromeda's highs and lows from two vastly different perspectives -- and somehow, they end up with similar conclusions.

Spoilers for the entire Mass Effect series reside below; you've been warned.




PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds hits early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 12:02 pm
The funny thing about ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Battle Royale’ games isn’t that they miss how awful those dystopian murdergames are, rather that they recreate the experience of the antagonists – those hated and feared few who relish the killing and thrive in murderland. They’re the all-star Battle Royale, throwing dozens of Kiriyamas and Catos into […]


New Prey trailer teases player choices and their nightmarish consequences
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2017, 12:18 pm
It's not just Morgan's gender that you can choose in Prey; developer Arkane wants you to make choices all throughout the game, from how you treat other survivors aboard Talos-1 to how much of your own humanity you're willing to sacrifice to become more powerful
